I was 20 the last time I was pierced. At the time I went for a frenum, which was my 8th piercing at the time. About 5 years later I took them all out except for my ear gauges.
Fast forward to Monday, 5/16/2016. I had been toying with the idea of getting my nipples pierced, and the idea had even been sort of an inside joke among friends. They all thought I was kidding around, but I've always wanted to have them done.
On March 5th went back to Byriah (piercer at Texas Tattoo Emporium) and got my nipples done. Almost a year after the PA.
Compared to the PA the pain for the nipples being pierced was worse for me and the pain stuck around for a long time. It took several hours for the pain to mostly go away. The next couple days things were a bit sensitive. Keep in mind that I seem to hang on to pain for quite a while.
I had both Nips pierced nearing a year ago, and I love them. They have grown larger (as promised), but I do not believe that such small (14 ga.) is heavy enough to stretch them and make them fully heal. How can I know if they are ready for a stretch to the next larger gauge? My piercer makes no recommendations. He only says that he will stretch them when I ask him to. If it will hurt no worse than the original piercing did, I don't worry about it - but if it is going to be more painful I need to know before the stretch. Any comment will be deeply appreciated.
Something I always wanted was to have my nipples pierced. Now, at age 55, I did it! I found a small shop near Atlanta with a piercer that I felt good about. Sweet girl named CJ. Anyway, I had called ahead then went in for a consult. She was very knowledgeable for her age (25 I think) and I quickly put my trust in her. I picked out 12 guage barbells and after going through the autoclave we set out to do the deed. Her method was marking, checking then a freehand pierce. No clamps! I was amazed how easily the first went in. That second one was a SOB!
Im not new to piercings since I have a 4g PA that i got about a year and a half ago. Since about the same time I have wanted to get both of my nipples done as well. I knew that I had to get them both done at the same time. Everything that I had read in here said that everyone always wants them both or they regret not getting them both at the same time.
I had also read that the nipples are among the most sensitive. Even more so than the PA piercing that I already had and I could expect more pain and a longer healing time.
Got my right nipple pierced today by Josh at Pangea piercing in Ann Arbor, MI. Was so nervous I had got my pa done here over 2 years ago and I have it at a 2 gauge now I figured it was time to get the nipples done and I only wanted to start with the one to see how it went. Having only the experience of my PA I was expecting a lot of bleeding which there wasn't and I am really happy about that. It even hurt less and Josh was able to free hand the piercing and did a wonderful job. It hurt for a few hours after and now its down to a dull ache, I wish I had got both done at the same time.
I have always wanted to get my nipples pierced for as long as I can remember. Something about the sensitivity it allowed captivated me. Today, while in church for Evening Prayer, I thought "this is the day that I am going to do this!" and so after Prayer, I asked God if this is what He wanted to let me know. So after talking about this with the piercer months before about my yearning for this piercing, I decided I would go there. I arrived and knew how much it would be (80 for both including jewelry). The piercer informed me that it was cash only for piercings.
Unlike many guys here, I didn't think very hard about getting my nipples pierced. I got hooked on the idea a couple of weeks ago, had a good old chat with my nipples to see if they were okay with it (they were a little anxious but I bought them over in the end) and that was that.
Like all piercings, I think its going to be super easy and straight forward... until I'm sitting on the chair and I get a glimpse of the needles sitting there menacingly. Time seemed to drag so slowly in anticipation.
After 63 years of no piercings, 9 months ago I got my first piercing a PA - aahhhhhhh - why did I wait so long.
Today I have added another 2 more holes to my body by getting my nipples pierced.
I had been told that the nipples are amongst the most painful of the piercings, and while I have not had too many holes punched in me I can say that they are up there on the pain scale.
I had warned the west coast of the states that they may hear my scream across the pacific when I got them done, it was not that bad.
Today I got my nipples pierced (about 6 hours ago). I was thinking about that for almost two years and today was the day D. I made an appointment in my favourite piercing studio at the guy who did my PA piercing. And he was great again! I was really nervous when I went there but we were talking while he was preparing everything for the piercing and it was really great because it helped me to relax.
